Green Acorn Promotional Partnership

Civic House
 

  • Additional support has been awarded to the Green Acorn Certification Program, a Fall 2009 Green Fund project, to raise awareness of the initiative through an expanded marketing and advertising campaign. A Wharton Management 100 team will collaborate with Green Acorn to develop “Acorn Nuts”, a frequent customer rewards program that will use punch cards to encourage patronage at certified businesses.
  • The rewards program will be launched in the Spring 2011 semester. 150 frequent customer cards will be distributed.
